The Blanchard Lions faced the Mount St Mary Rockets in semi-final action Friday night in the Dental Lodge Classic at Noble losing 34-49. The Lions had their worst scoring performance of the season managing only 11 points in the second half which lead to the lopsided loss. In what may have been one of their better 1st quarters of the season the Lions jumped out to a commanding 15-8 lead to end the quarter and that’s where the scoring started to crumbled managing only 19 points the rest of the way. The Lions were led by Junior Caden Frazier’s 16 points, even though he got in foul trouble early in the 2nd. After that, Junior’s Whit Carpenter and Chase Fox each had 6 points, Sophomore Lincoln Smith had 4 and rounding out the scoring Senior Dylan Lewis added 2. The Lions will play the Perkins-Tryon Demons Saturday afternoon at 5;30 for the 3rd place trophy.
